3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brennanís. Pours a very dark brown with garnet highlights. Almost no head and almost no lacing. Gotta enjoy that reddish tint in the color though. Aroma has roasted malts, cocoa powder and some earthiness. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruit, some chocolate, faint coffee and a dry saltiness that I would say is oyster. Finishes sweet and somewhat short and dry. Hmmm. I would say the "best" oyster stout I have had, somewhat damning with faint praise.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Nesodden. Tiny light brown head which disappears completely after a couple of minutes. Solid dark brown body. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, smoked wood. Gentle on the tongue, mostly sweet. Feels a little thin on the palate. Light fizzy carbonation. The oysters seem well hidden, but I sense something salt and seafood-like in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Pours a dark brown/black with a thin beige head that disappears quickly. No lacing. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, dry, but Iím not getting the oyster. Mouthfeel is thinner than expected. This is a smooth easy to drink beer. In body and flavor, itís more like a porter than a stout.

Bottle. Pours black with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet chocolate and roasted malt with a good amount of earthiness backing. Flavor has a distinct note of oysters with roasted malts, dark chocolate and dark grains backing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. Opaque with a lasting film of bubbles. Nose is chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Tastes of vanilla, malted milk chocolate, toasted walnut, espresso and graham cracker. Medium body is to the sweet side but finishes dry enough with a light astringency. Medium carbonation is mostly smooth but has some fizzy flareups that are my only complaint about this otherwise tasty brew. Well done, though not sure what the oysters may have added other than some body?

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle for 1.79. Pours very dark brown, almost black with a dark amber hue to it. Aroma is huge on the coffee and caramel flavors. Slightly chocolatey as well. Taste is similar with a nice roasty flavor at the end. Body is creamy, slightly heavy and low carbonation. Overall this is an excellent stout. I wish they made an imperial version of this beer. But itís still an excellent, smooth, easily drinkable stout.

Pours very dark with a short head. Nice flavor, roasted but donít really notice hints of oyster. A good stout, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Oyster stout galattica di Flying Dog che lascia di stucco e ammalia il palato con un gusto intenso e cioccolatoso, con note di malti tostati, caffť e una sfumatura quasi citrica. Corpo denso e setoso. Davvero buona.
